Product Description

The Highlands from Somerled to the Clearances

Author: Robert Dodgshon

Publisher: Birlinn

This is the first overview of Highland society ever to be written covering the period from the rise of Somerled to the first clearances. The period has been chosen as one of considerable continuity and deals with four main themes - the changing political relationships and tensions within the region; the clans - their composition, alliances strongholds and patterns of display; the changes in settlement over time, and the economy of the Highlands and Islands.
